A gunman turned a Las Vegas concert into a killing field Sunday night, murdering at least 50 people and injuring more than 200 others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.

The suspect, who was killed, was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a resident of Mesquite. Police initially sought a woman believed to be Paddock's roommate, Marilou Danley, as "person of interest." Detectives later made contact with her, and "do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip."

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the dead gunman is believed to have checked in as a hotel guest, but did not immediately reveal a motive.


Authorities said two on-duty Las Vegas Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers were injured during shooting. One in stable condition after surgery, and the other sustained minor injuries. Two off-duty police officers attending the concert were killed.

President Donald Trump tweeted his condolences to the victims of the Las Vegas massacre, saying "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!"

The gunman, who fired down on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, was killed by police.



Federal law enforcement sources told Fox News that Paddock "was known to local authorities" in Vegas, and multiple weapons were found in his hotel room

At this time, federal officials do not see any connection to international terrorism and little is known about Paddock's motivation, sources said.

Authorities first received calls about an active shooting at about 10:08 p.m. Country music star Jason Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when the gunfire erupted.

Aldean was performing his last song of the night. Initially, those in attendance said they thought the sound was firecrackers. But as the shots continued, Aldean stopped singing and some concertgoers could be heard yelling to each other to get down.

One witness told KSVN that he heard “hundreds of shots.” The gunfire was rapid and reportedly confused with firecrackers.

"It sounded like a machine gun," one vendor told Fox News. "It sounded like more than one machine gun."

Authorities said law enforcement swarmed the hotel and killed the gunman in a room on the 32nd floor. Responding officers used an explosive device to force the door open into the room to shoot Paddock dead, law enforcement officials told Fox News.

Country singer Jake Owen, who performed before Aldean, told Fox News the gunfire was "non-stop."

406 reported injured this morning.

No idea what the motive was. If it's politically based, I fear what America's future might look like within these coming months.

I gotta say this sounds unlikely, but I just got this on a news feed:

02 October 2017
14:13 GMT
Islamic State terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the Las Vegas shooting, Reuters reports, citing group’s Amaq news agency.
The shooter has converted to Islam “months ago,”

Fox News just mentioned the possibility of an IS connection.



Edit:

More from the news feed:

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” Reuters cited the Amaq, IS-affiliated website. “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago.”

That didn't take long.. The people involved are still in the hospital ER, and they are already blaming the gun.

Hillary has already been bashing the NRA.
8 hours ago. So just hours after the shooting.

I don't think there is any confirmation on the ISIS link. They'd claim anything they could get their hands on.

Is anyone really buying the control BS now? It didn't help Nice, France!

If concert goers were CCW holders and allowed to carry they could have returned fire.

For those that want more gun control (bans) who do they call when there is a shooting?? (someone with guns)
They can't wait to try and use things like this..

IF this comes out to be another leftist bernie/Hillary supporter.. The GOP needs to make the DEMs eat their words, and call them out over and over until it's just a pulp of a dead horse.

We all know it's going to be.. Right wing people are not going to show up and shoot up a country concert.

Yeah, but the sad reality is, if this isn't terrorist related there is a strong chance that the perp was a gun rights proponent. If this is the case, it makes this incident much more devastating. It will eventually be us law abiding gun owners who suffer the consequences indirectly. Very, very sad!

What a tragedy. These people were out having a good time and many lives were shattered in the blink of an eye by the actions of a selfish, hate fueled pos. Something needs to eventually change.

I agree. There is very little a handgun would have done to stop the perp in this incident.

I was just about to post what everyone else stated. Handguns would've been useless in this situation, but would've been useful in Nice, France. For sure.
